Hello fellows, I hope you all are doing great. In today’s tutorial, we will have a look at **Difference Between Speed and Velocity. **. We can find the movement of an object with the calculation of distance completed by an object in a given time interval called **speed. **The speed is sometimes considered similar to the velocity since these 2 have some similarities. But these are different parameters of motion in science.

**Velocity** is a calculation of the distance covered by a body in a certain direction. In today’s post, we will have a detailed look at both these factors of motion and their relationship with each other. So let’s get started with the *Difference between Speed and Velocity.*

## Difference between Speed and Velocity

**Speed**

- Distance traveled by an object in unit time is called speed.
- Speed tells about how fast someone is moving.

- It is a scalar quantity.
- the speed formula is s=d/t here s is speed d distance t time
- its dimensiosn is M
^{0}L^{1}T^{-1} - main 4 types it has
- uniform, average, instantaneous, variable
- equal distance in equal time called uniform speed
- same time is taken to cover different distances called variable
- total distance to total time ratio called average speed
- Speed taken at any time is called instant speed
- A speedometer is used to speed measurements.
- It denoted the rapidity of a body.
- It is a rate of change of distance.
- If the body covers some distance and moves back to the original position its distance speed will not be zero.
- The speed of moving bodies is not 0.

- Its SI unit m/s.
- Anybody can have different velocities but has the same speed.

**Velocity**

- The rate of change in the position of the body with time is called velocity.
- It is equivalent to the body speed feature having direction and movement.
- It is mostly used in the science field of kinematics.
- It is a physical term that has velocity tan magnitude.
- Its unit is m/s other units are ft/s, km/h
- Average velocity is Δv=Δx/Δt
- angular velocity is ω=Δθ/Δt
- If the body has zero distance its velocity is zero velocity
- The velocity measured between two objects is called relative velocity.
- Its dimension is LT
^{−1} - The moving body has zero value of speed

- A change in velocity called acceleration
- Speed measured at any instant of moving object is called instantaneous speed
- The product of mass and velocity is equal to the momentum.
- It is a vector quantity.
- It denoted the rapidity and location of a body.
- It is the rate of change of displacement.
- If the body covers some distance and comes to its original position its velocity will be 0.
- The velocity of moving bodies can be negative, positive or 0.
- Its system international unit is m/s.

## Speed vs Velocity

- Speed is a scalar quantity and has magnitude, not direction.
- Velocity is a vector and comes with both magnitude and direction.
- Speed measures the distance covered by the body with time and velocity measures magnitude and direction.
- Speed is employed for measuring time and distance during traveling. While velocity is used in vector mechanics and dynamics physics.
- Speedometer used for measuring speed and velocity measured with vector displacement on time.

### What is different between speed and velocity?

- Speed defines the body’s change in distance with time and velocity is a change in displacement with time.

### What are 5 examples of velocity?

- Rotation of earth about the sun
- Vehicle speed.
- Train moving speed.
- Rivier moving with a fluctuating speed.
- Speed of bat striking ball.

### What is the correct relationship between velocity and speed?

- Speed is the measuring of distance covered for a certain time and velocity is displacement over time. Speed is the same as velocity when the direction of motion is a
**straight line**.

### What is the formula for velocity and speed?

- Velocity is a vector quantity that finds the value of displacement with time. That is denoted as
**v = Δs/Δt**. - Speed is a scalar quantity that measures the distance covered with time denoted as r = d/Δt.

### Is the speedometer a scalar?

- The speedometer is a device that comes with the instantaneous speed of the object. The speed is a scalar quantity and we can say that the speedometer measures a scalar quantity.
